There’s no defrosting a 25-pound Butterball turkey at Aaron Rodgers’ house.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback He isn’t hosting Thanksgiving this year, but he plans to enjoy the feast that Mason Crosby and his wife, Molly, will serve.

During his weekly appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show” On Tuesday, Rodgers talked turkey before he got his injured thumb, “the wobblers,” his future and other football-related matters. Thanksgiving ranks as “one of my favorite festive holidays,” he said, which might explain why he’s so hilarious talking about it — even if he’s cleared of hosting duties among some of the guys this time around.

“There have never been too many competing parties, but this year, the Crosbys, you know, rose up and said, ‘Not this year. “This year is ours,” Rodgers said, giving it a backstory of humor. “I would have assumed Bakhtiaris (David and Frankie) and Kobs (Randall and Aida) would gladly host this threesome thing at my house as they have in the past, but the Crosbys jumped in there and blew everyone off our guest lists, so it’s at the Crosbys this year.”

Rodgers is good at that. He said there was more freedom to “go out French or Irish” (the custom of leaving a party without saying goodbye). And while the Crosbys were always invited to, and occasionally attended, Thanksgiving celebrations at his home, Rodgers joked that they weren’t always “100% RSVPers.”

When asked by McAfee if he expects a good spread from Crosbys, Rodgers has done more hitting for his teammate over the past 15 years.

“I’d better be there judging the hell out of all of this. The garnishes, the way the food is presented, the food choices, the dessert choices. I’ll try really hard to get into my own ayahuasca A mindset that doesn’t judge every little thing, but how could you not? ” He said.

“The first, foremost, and most fun thing to judge is turkey, right? Because literally, as anyone who’s cooked a turkey knows, it’s the most nerve-wracking thing of all time to get this thing right.”

Rodgers admitted that despite all the stress that comes with preparing a bird, it ranks behind all the side dishes on most people’s lists of favorite indulgences at the Thanksgiving table. That turned the conversation to the topic of putting gravy on the turkey, something McAfee revealed he doesn’t do.

“Gravy is for mashed potatoes, because mashed potatoes taste bad and you need good flavor,” McAfee said.

At least one whoop can be heard in the studio, and rightfully so.
